Lessons
Findings
Recommendations
1

Continue the Pacific Risk Resilience Programme (PPRP) in the four countries in which it currently operates.

2

At this point of the program, focus the use of program resources on strengthening country-based initiatives within the four existing program countries.

3

Clearly map, define and document the multiple ways in which PRRP works within partner systems in each country, and use this information base to improve strategic clarity.

4

Clearly map, define and document each of the PRRP team members’ (Country National Managers, PRRP Posts, LLEE and Suva Hub staff) roles and responsibilities, lines of reporting and communication protocols to improve operational clarity.

5

Clarify and strengthen the working relationships between UNDP (national managers and Hub) and LLEE so that respective organisations and individuals operate effectively as a partnership and are recognised as “one PRRP team

6

Revise the design of the next phase of the Programme based on proposed adjustments

7

Strengthen capacity building on GSI to equip all PRRP team members (TAs, national managers and Posts) with the fundamentals of what GSI looks like in practice in PRRP priority sectors.

8

Develop a basic toolkit and capacity development resource on risk and climate change, to equip all team members with a strong baseline understanding of issues core to PRRP.

9

Conduct MEL activities to enable emergent design inclusive of programme improvement, learning and accountability. Targeted MEL efforts will also enable future scale and replication.

10

Additional PRRP resourcing will be required to oversee the implementation of these recommendations, specifically personnel with skills and experience in MEL, organisational learning and change management processes.
